Friday Favorites: Camera, Yarn, and Best Friends

Happy Friday Everyone!! What a perfect end to a strange week. . . (aren't they always strange. . . hahaha) So, I would like to enlist my followers in helping me choose. I am looking for a point-n-shoot camera for our trip. I know I know, the SLR's are the way to go. But honestly, I want something I can stick in my pocket and not get a neck cramp or worry about damaging a larger camera. Small is good :) I'm looking at two of the following, but if you lovely readers have other suggestions let me know.

I am very partial to Canon (thanks Sara!) So the Canon A3300is is great! 16 megapixel and image stabilization is great! However there is a lag-time of about 4 seconds between photos. However, I don't plan on shooting a race with this camera, it might bug me in the future. But I LOVE CANON!! Oh another thing, suggestions: need to be between $100-$200 dollars. ;)

The second is something I never thought I would venture to. Not to say I don't like Sony, just never thought I'd like their cameras. I'm old school with my brands I suppose. HOWEVER!!! this little guy is rather interesting. It shoots faster than the Canon, also has a special feature for low-light photos. Yeah! Oh N. Michigan winters SUCK! as far as light goes. Boom! if I wanna take a photo after work in the living room, I have to turn every light on and even then, I have trouble. So this little fella might be nice for that. 10 megapix, which I was really hoping for between 14-16, but this has a 10 optic zoom! and a panorama feature. Pretty cool.

Okay, away from tech, to YARN!! I have been bitten by the bug again. This lovely above is gonna be a sock with lovely Malabrigo sock yarn. I love it, and I've had it since last February, so now it's being used.

Back at the end of May, the Plucky Knitter was here in N. Michigan. Ohhh I love her yarn!!! I picked up two of the Primo! So soft!
I wanted a special pattern, so this will be a hat!! I know it's off the needles, but needs finishing touches! It'll have BUTTONS!! Yeah! How cool!!


My besty Ace-Gang member is coming home this today, or tonight rather, for her Wedding next week. I cannot wait to see her tomorrow. I'm putting on her Bach. Party :) It'll be soo much fun!!

Happy Friday!!

1- Either camera would be good! The first point and shoot I had was a Sony Cybershot and it's fantastic. Jim has the A3300 if I'm not mistaken and he loves it- it also does the HD video, right? He loved it.

2- The photo of you and Erin is SO cute. YOUR HAIR IS SO LONG NOW!!! Congratulations to Erin for her wedding!! *HUGS TO YOU BOTH*
